You will love having a hoist, I got one in my shop and it is my most useful tool out there, can't imagine life without it to be honest. Sure beats the hell out of wallowing around in the dirt I can tell you that.

You've just re-comfirmed my desire to do a build like this myself with one of these Broncos. I've always liked 'em, never had one, and it would be fun to do with my sons. Looks great, good job, and great thread OP. Thanks

Sick Bronco man! I love the way that the paint came out. I had a 96 with the 5.0 in it. Many days I wish I would have kept it.

This makes me miss my 95 soooooo much, but mine was on its way to death, transmission slipping, blow hubs, ball joints were all shot, and a blown head gasket. Damn Ford just kept going and going and going!

the long shaft that does down into the engine that actually turns the whole system while the engine is running has been grinded down. missing teeth, metal shavings...

not exactly sure how that happened.

At least it's not your daily driver. Good luck getting back to it when time and finances allow.

Sounds like it was installed wrong or something. Bummer.

well we finally got the bronco inside!



unfortunately we have gone backwards with the build. we are now going to have to redo the whole interior due to mold/mildew from sitting outside so much in shitty conditions.

also one of the brake lines has rusted through.

and we still havent decided what we are going to do about the computer/electrical systems and engine.
